Collage has always been integral to my practice. It engages in sculptural tendencies. Cutting bits of paper and holding them in your hand, the application of those bits to a surface-for myself it is all an additive process; very little is subtracted. Over time, collage has merged with the painting. The results in the image is often of a piecemealed effect. The picture is flat-forms shuffle on the same plane. Forms overlap but there is no sense of extended space.
